Two hundred years after the birth of President Abraham Lincoln, several state museums and historic parks in downtown Sacramento will showcase special exhibits that celebrate Lincoln's far-reaching legacy.
"Lincoln's California Legacy" includes a series of exhibits that have a unique point of focus but all honor our nation's revered sixteenth president and his lasting legacy in California.
The series underscores the important role Lincoln played in shaping the American railroad and thereby forever impacting the Golden State, a topic made especially interesting given that Lincoln never actually visited California.
"Lincoln's California Legacy" is on display at the California State Capitol Museum today through Nov. 4. For more information, visit http://www.californiamuseum.org">www.californiamuseum.org or http://www.calendar.lodinews.com">www.calendar.lodinews.com.
"Xanadu" in Sacramento
"Xanadu," the 1980 musical, is live on stage at California Musical Theatre in Sacramento through Jan. 10. Taking audiences back to 1980 California, this hilarious musical follows the beautiful Kira, who travels to earth to inspire a struggling artist named Sonny, as she helps this aspiring painter to find his voice, discover true love and build the world's first roller disco. The show is complete with headbands, legwarmers and disco. The Sacramento stop is the Northern California premiere of the national tour.
